maybe categorize your own sims mods

I think categorizing your own The Sims 4 mods can be important to find your way through so many ccs and mods.

    Hi, we have categorizing options for sims mods. What exactly do you mean by this?

    I wish Curseforge would scan ONE folder deep inside the Mods and Tray folder. By default, Curseforge "organizes" files to keep track of updates ONLY if they are in the main mods or tray folder. I want Curseforge to track and/or install one folder deep. Why one folder deep? Because script mods still work one folder deep, but no more than that. Even if there is the most basic of organization, I would love to see at least 3 named folders in the Mods folder: The Sims 4/Mods/Curseforge CAS, (avatar customization content), The Sims 4/Mods/Curseforge Script mods, The Sims 4/Mods/Curseforge Objects. (the objects would be build or buy mode). Better yet, if possible I would like to see a folder for CAS loading screen (since there can be only ONE at a time, but there are many possibilities and options)

    This is also important because lots of stuff (especially the scripts) break every time the game is patched and then we have to troubleshoot using the 50/50 method (remove 50%, test, then repeat until the problem is narrowed down). Which means if everything is installed in the Sims 4/Mods or Sims 4/Tray folder, then typically the whole Mods folder (which can be over 10 to 20 GB in size) has to be renamed to something other than Mods until everything is tested.

Hold on!
